Notes

!SOURCE: U.S. mail from Earle K. Peckham (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, Jan 1998. Gives name Mercy, d. 1747

!SOURCE: William A. Mowry, in The Descendants of Nathaniel Mowry of Rhode Island (Providence: Sidney S. Rider, 1878), p. 62, incorrectly identifies the Marcy Mowry who married Nathan Staples as the last daughter of Oliver Mowry and Dorcas Whipple. (That Marcy was born sometime after 29 Dec 1737--after this Marcy/Mercy's children were born!!) (See RIN 15272 for the Marcy who was the daughter of Oliver and Dorcas (Whipple) Mowry.)

!SOURCE: International Genealogical Index (Internet). Has several entries for a Mercy Mowry (b. abt 1711) who married Nathan Staples in about 1731 in Rhode Island.

!SOURCE: Email from N. Combs to Weldon Whipple, 19 Nov 2005. Norma writes:

The Marcy/Mary Mowry b. abt 1711 who married Nathan Staples can't be the daughter of Oliver Mowry {11743} and Dorcas Whipple {15271}. Dorcas was born in 1708 and Oliver abt 1700, too young to be parents in 1711. Their daughter Marcy is probably the wife of Abner Latham {34563}. {Arnold's VRs 3:5:44 Cumberland 1:20 records the May 03, 1761 marriage in Cumberland, Providence, RI of Abner Lapham and Marcy Mowry, but doesn't list fathers.

As some proof, I offer an extraction from the will of Oliver Mowry dated December 05, 1755; Codicil 2/20/1756. In the will Oliver mentions wife Dorcas, sons Job & James Mowry, both under 21; 3 eldest daughters Silence Cook, Abigail Sanders, & Anne Hadden; youngest dau. Marcy Mowry under 18; grandson Nathan Staples under 21; cousin Joseph Mowry (src: Smithfield (Old) Council and Probate Records 2:191-194.

Marcy Mowry was "under 18" in 1755 and thus not born before 1737. In 1755 she was still unmarried, so isn't the mother of any Staples children born before 1755.

"cousin Joseph Mowry" is prob. nephew Joseph Mowry, son of Oliver's older bro. Joseph.

"grandson Nathan Staples under 21" is the puzzler. I suspect that "grandson" is really "nephew," making Marcy Mowry, who died bef. January 04, 1746/47, sister to Oliver Mowry. Marcy Mowry is not named in the will of Joseph Mowry {10860} dated May 19, 1746 as she had died bef. that date.

Five children are named as children of Joseph Mowry {10860} and Alice Whipple {6108}. However, there is a gap of 12 years between the birth of Oliver Mowry on September 26, 1699 and that of Alice Mowry on January 06, 1711/12. Births of the first three were recorded in Arnold's VRs 2:1:234, Providence 1:426. An undocumented source gives an approximate birth date of 1709 for Mary/Marcy Mowry.
